While riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200S in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey I had my most memorable crash.  This was over thirty years ago and no injury happened to my trike, me or my buddy Joe.  I was hammering the gas to try to keep up with Joe's faster 1986 Honda ATC 250SX when out of nowhere he stopped.  His brake light wasn't working so by the time I realised he was stopped it was too late.  I lined up my front wheel to his right rear wheel and SMACK!  I flew over the bars and Joe's right shoulder.  I did a flip landing flat on my back in soft sand.  While I flipped over Joe he looked over his left shoulder and missed the whole thing.  We laughed it off and kept riding.

My worst crash was on my Rokon during Elk season towing my trailer with a full load of wood down hill in the mountains. Brakes went out and could not stop. Ended up crashing on the side of the gravel road, landed on a boulder and bruised my kidneys. It made for a terrible trip for the next week. The bike was just fine, not a dent on it.

BTW, Rokon brakes are not the best!

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500.  bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up.   cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great.  these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear.  not a fan.  lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case.  so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie.  front is more complicated.  has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
      so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250.  i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit.  it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools.  so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
      anyone ever done this and if so how?
